, and tough. >> and send in memories of the jersey shore. >> absolutely, thank you for bringing that to us, the news continues with don lemon in columbus, ohio, battleground stat state. >>> thank you very much, fredricka, i'm don lemon. good evening, everyone, from the beautiful boat house restaurant in downtown columbus, ohio, we're coming to you tonight from a critical swing state, a state, quite frankly, with the luxury to call itself the swing state. a state in our minds and hearts that can only call itself devastated, places like jersey and new york. for almost a week now, we have been watching people literally fight for their lives. >> we are going to die. you don't understand, you got to get your trucks here on this corner. >> nearly 3 million people, still without power in 15 states. 106 people are dead now, and leaders say they could find more bodies underneath the rubble or washing to shore. now, that is a background, but with no gas and water in some places and with food and shelter in short supply in many places, where would politics? specifically voting, be on your list of pri
scott for welcoming us here and lieutenant governor carol. thank you also to jeff atwater. as you know, jeff is the chief financial officer of the state. but he's been the co-chair of my effort here along with adam putnam who as you know is the commissioner of agriculture. appreciate their work. will weatherford, speaker of the house, has addressed here. i appreciate his support. senator mel martinez is here. appreciate mel being here. i think i've -- oh, i didn't mention congressman john. where's john? he's over here. hi there. it's quite a gathering today. this is -- it's quite a welcome that you provided me. your voices -- your voices are not just heard in this hangar, they're being heard all over the nation. and even though -- even though ann is in a different city this morning, they are being felt, your voices, in both of our hearts. and i want you to know how much we appreciate all that you've done, all the doors you've knocked on, all the phone calls you've made and how many of you voted early. i saw the hands that went up when i asked. that's very good. an some of you have put
a million man demonstration that has been called. give us a sense why are people still protest and what do we expect in the next 24 hours, the days to come? >> reporter: well, they're protesting because they're angry with president morsi, his dekoreas and how the drafting of this constitution has unfolded, and there doesn't soop seem to be an end to the protest. they're back here in big numbers. tens of thousands of them here in tahrir square. we're going to show you what it looks like at this hour. i think one of the outcomes of the 2011 egyptian revolution was that egyptians became very good in protesting, so it doesn't matter what people are fighting for here. it seems they like to come out and free-throws the opposition factions that are back here in tahrir. these are the liberals, the seculars. we were just down there. we saw a lot of women, women's rights activists who don't like how this constitution was drafted. they don't believe they were well represented in the panel that drafted this constitution, and they're demanding that president morsi anulls the draft of this constitution
more than i used to. >> thought so. >> but it is like anything, when a mechanic leaves the garage, i hope he stops thinking about the engine. when the mailman goes home, i hope he stops thinking about the mail. when we say good night, i mean see you later. >> president obama has very little time to savor the victory of his because he's scheduled to head back to washington in the next hour. jill dougherty is at the white house for us right now. jill, what is on tap for the president? once he returns right there? >> reporter: yeah, he comes back, what, in about three hours, three and a half hours. and, you know, brooke, he's still got that desk, still got the same desk, and it is filled with many of the same things that he had before he went away to chicago to watch the election. and that is, of course, i mean, you would have to say, number one, bring the country together, and that is just, you know, huge, whether that can happen is one giant question. and it is tied, you know, to the second issue, which is the fiscal cliff that we keep referring to. $7 trillion worth of potential tax
for joining us. i'm carol costello. new death toll and deepening concern from hurricane sandy three days after the storm washed ashore. here is a time lapsed video. that's what you're look iing at right now. watch the right side of your screen as the new york city skyline is plunged into darkness. there it goes. today, nearly 5 million homes and businesses are still without power. the death toll is inching up again. superstorm blamed for 56 deaths in the united states. half the victims just in new york city. the mayor says he expects that number to rise. officials say it is a miracle no one died in the firestorm that burned 111 homes to the ground in queens. likely cause? broken lines of natural gas. dozens of those fires still burn in several states. we'll have more on that in a minute. >>> last of the patients are now evacuated from new york's bellevue hospital. national guard troops lined the stair dels well to usher out more than 700 patients. soldiers call themselves, quote, a human bucket brigade. >>> jersey shore's fragile barrier islands weren't even a speed bump. ferocious winds and s
of us falters, we lift them up. in this country, we take care of our own. especially our veterans who have served us so bravely and sacrificed so selflessly in our name. >> veterans day parades are the traditional way to honor our military. but organizers in new york city promoted the event as a rally for storm victims. coats were collected for those hit hardest. in north carolina thousands turned out for the parade in fayet fayetteville. the theme was a welcome home for all iraq veterans. two deaths in new york have raised the death toll from superstorm sandy to 116. they are standing watch to ward off luters. >>> for the latest on the resignation of david petraeus, members of congress are expressing concerns that matters of national security may have been compromised. they question the link that the fbi probed into the fernl affairs, which began with a complaint that his mistress was sending harassing e-mails to someone close to the general. >>> tens of thousands of people in the path of superstorm sandy still have no electricity as we have just reported. they are forced to put on l
single one of us, and you can bet there's plenty going on behind the scenes. this past hour we heard from the president in the east room of the white house basically announcing he's inviting leaders from both houses of congress and from both political parties to meet with him at the white house next friday. just a couple of minutes ago, we heard the president say he's open to compromise and open to new ideas, but there's one point the president is sticking to -- higher taxes for people making higher incomes. take a listen. >> i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me, making over $250,000 aren't a asked to pay a dime more in taxes. >> two hours before we saw the president, we saw the house speaker, republican, john boehner, said quote, everything on the revenue side and on the sp spending side has to be looked at but when it comes to specifics he put the ball firmly in barack obama's court. >> i don't want to box myself in or anyone else in. i think it is impo
cheryl lin says my personal opinion is to stop all campaigning and use the funds to support the victims of hurricane sandy. "cnn newsroom" continues with brooke baldwin. >> thank you. good to be with you on this thursday. important jobs news with just five days to go here before the election. this is a new report, released today which indicates the u.s. employers hiring in bigger numbers than expected. let me be clear. this information, this is not coming from that all-important government jobs report. that doesn't come out until tomorrow. so today's numbers come from adp. they process payroll so let's go straight to alison kosik for this. what more do we know about this report? >> okay. what this report does, brooke, surveys how many jobs that private employers have added so it means all those industries that are outside of the government arena and what it said this time around for october is 158,000 jobs were added. and it came in better than expected, seeing good job gains in services and construction and a second report on jobs showing unemployment claims fell by 9,000 l
with the strongest military the world has ever known. it's time to use the savings from the wars in iraq and afghanistan to pay down our debt and rebuild america. putting hard hats back to work and make our schools state-of-the-art all across this country. hiring our veterans because if you fought for our freedom, you shouldn't have to fight for our job or a roof over your head or the services you've earned when you come home. that's what will keep us strong. that's my commitment to you, and that's what is at stake in this election. yes, change is a future where we reduce our deficits, but we do it in a balanced, responsible way. you know, i have signed $1 trillion worth of spending cuts, got rid of programs that aren't working. i intend to do more, but if we're serious about the deficit, we can't just consult our way to prosperity. by the way, we can afford it. i haven't talked to bruce, but i know you can afford it. i can afford it. mr. romney can afford it. as long as i'm president, i'm not going to kick some poor kids off a head start to give me a tax cut. i'm want going to turn medi
'll be able to update this story throughout the next hour. thanks for joining us, everyone. >>> welcome to newsroom international. we're taking you around the world in 60 minutes. we're beginning with breaking news. an explosion on an oil platform in the gulf of mexico just set off a major fire. two workers are now missing. want to bring in chad myers with the latest on what we know about this. any details? >> literally things just coming in here. it was a production platform. it was not a drilling rig. it was in shallow water. it was not deep water. they were not drilling. there was not a blowout. this is not take two, okay? >> this is not like we saw in 2010. >> this is not an environmental disaster according to the coast guard that's out there right now. this is not what we saw when it took ray year to cap that oil from coming into the gulf of mexico, but six were injured. two possibly killed from this explosion. it was considered to be a production problem. production and drilling completely different. production means it's railroad working. they don't even believe there was any oil
much for joining us. i'm carol costello. "cnn newsroom" continues right now with ashleigh banfield. >>> nice to see you, everyone. it is 11:00 on the east coast. 8:00 on the west coast. and it has come down to this. after thousands of speeches and hundreds of ads, after hundreds of millions of dollars bankrolling months and months of nonstop campaigning, the two main candidates for president in 2012 are tied. see for yourself. the final preelection cnn polling could literally not be closer. president obama supported by 47% of likely voters. mitt romney supported by -- excuse me 49% of likely voters. mitt romney supported by 49% of likely voters. other late polls look very, very similar. one shows them tied at 48%. if you look way down at the bottom there. the others give the president somewhere between a one and three-point edge, depending on which one you look at there. but margin of error sefrg. the race to reach the voters on election eve is just so competitive. mitt romney is racing from florida in the morning to new hampshire tonight with stops in virginia and ohio in between.
charles schumer who was on a tour of staten island, and even for those of us who live in the new york area, the death and the destruction unleashed by sandy and the pain and the fear of the recovery process are really difficult to completely comprehend. take for instance all of the people working behind me who are coming to work and seeing this as they pass by. no gas. people are lining up everywhere with cans and if they are not sitting in their cars for hours to wait to get a drop of gas from a pump that might have power, because many of the fuel pumps don't have power. so there are gas shortages. there are food shortages in a place like new york city where almost every corner, you can get something to eat or you can buy something in a convenient store, at least there's water on somes, but you can barely get a bagel in many places. sandbagging, all of these things are still part of the issue with the flood iing. it is still a problem. batteries, water, matches, candles -- all of these things that you may take for granted, many people in the area surrounding new york can't take a shower.
. so many people, so little power, and so many obstacles. things that used to be so simple. boarding a bus, for instance. hours after this scene in new york city last night, a shoving match borne of frustration and sheer fatigue. i can tell you more than half of the city's subway lines are now back in business post superstorm sandy. and don't strain your eyes on this map, but please try to note the dimmed outlines in lower manhattan on the left-hand side of your screen. those are the lines that are no-go, because of flooding or lack of power or both. and that's a big part of the city. still, a silver lining. bus and subway and commuter train rides are free today. free tomorrow. under new york's transportation emergency decree. travel by car, however, is pretty much a nightmare. and even if you can travel, take a look at these things. cars lined up for gas. filling stations need power too, and in new jersey where these scenes were shot, almost 2 million homes and businesses do not have power. so you're looking at a line that will lead eventually to a bp station in middletown, new jers
the care that they need when they come home. that's my plan to keep us strong. that's my commitment to you. and that's what is at stake in this election. now, change is a future where we reduce our deficit in a way that's balanced and responsible. i signed $1 trillion worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work, but if we're serious about the deficit, we also have to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to the tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office. because as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agend
to columbus, let's go to white house correspondent brianna keilar who is live for us there. it looks like a pretty packed house this afternoon where the president will be speaking. and speaking of that ohio poll that we just showed, slight advantage? how is team obama feeling about those numbers? >> reporter: they're feeling good, brooke. this is a sliver of an advantage, i will tell you, but president obama is enjoying and has consistently for a while the sliver of an advantage here in ohio and in a number of key battleground states. ohio is really the most key battleground state. you look at the picture nationally, and he's not quite performing as well. our latest cnn orc poll of polls nationally has mitt romney tied with president obama, 49-49. but aides to president obama, david axelrod and david gibbs expressing confidence this morning saying that they think he will carry not only the electoral college, but also the popular vote, and, yeah, it is already very noisy here in the nationwide arena as you can tell, brooke. there is actually some areas you can't see, i know, on camera, in
correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who will be performing a small concert before president obama. here in wisconsin it's all about for the obama campaign getting people out to vote now on election day. early voting wrapped up in this state yesterday, but here, voters can also register as well as vote on the same day. back in 2008, more than 1 in 10 voters in the badger state did that. that's what the obama campaign is focusing on. when the president talks in the 4:00 p.m. eastern hour, he's going to be trying to counter as he did in ohio, mitt romney's message about being the candidate of real change. he's been saying to his supporters that mitt romney is not about change, and also he's been trying to urge them to be patient, saying that the economic recovery is on the right track. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with everything deci
. that's in cleveland, ohio. he told supporters a slogan used by the president four years ago better applies to him this time around. >> if you believe we can do better, if you believe america should be on a better course or if you're tired of being tired, then i ask you to vote for real change. paul ryan and i will bring real change to america from day one. when i'm elected, the economy and american jobs will still be stagnant, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. >> so that was cleveland, ohio. but mitt romney is now in pennsylvania. i told you they were busy. he wraps up the day with an appearance in newport news, virginia. very busy schedule. and that's president obama arriving a little while ago in south florida. he took issue with his opponent's promise of, quote, real change. listen. >> here's the thing, florida. we know what change looks like. what governor romney is offering ain't it. giving more power back to the biggest banks, that's not change. another $5 trillion tax cuts for the wealthy, that's not change. refusing to answer questions about the d
much up for grabs. joining us from bluemont, virginia. virginia jones, what is on the minds of people there in virginia other than that pumpkin smashing you have been seeing all day at great country farms? >> that's right, fredericka, we have been here watching people do this. they call it pumpkin chunking, it's a place to come to bring your jack-o-lantern when you're through with it. virginia went for barack obama back in 2008. the margin of victory was a little more than eight points, versus a little more than six points for the entire state. we have been talking to people here all day, not all of them have been louden county, a pretty good cross section. listen to what 2w0 of them had to say. >> i'll be supporting president obama, i believe he stands for women's rights, for children's rights for everyone's rights more than people who represent the top 1%. >> i was -- had high hopes for obama, but he just hasn't fulfilled them so i think it's time for a change and romney is that kind of manager, organizer that can do the job. >> reporter: and i'll tell you one thing i asked both of
